The buzz haircut, the square-set jaw, and the taut physique that must be the envy of many current ballplayers give Yankees manager Joe Girardi a no-nonsense appearance. In the case of the polished, 45-year-old alum of Northwestern, where he earned a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering, the look is not deceiving. Put it this way: What manager would walk over to the club owner's box and tell him to get off the umpire's back? Girardi did. The incident occurred during a game at Miami in August 2006.

Baseball Notable Joe Girardi might be headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers, a report on ESPN.com said yesterday. A broadcaster with the Yankees, Girardi is one of the candidates to succeed Joe Torre in New York. The agent for Girardi, Steve Mandel , was asked whether Girardi had been approached by the Dodgers, and Mandel would not comment. Dodgers manager Grady Little is under contract for next season after the team picked up his option for 2008 on March 7. Little also has a club option for 2009.

The New York Yankees picked experience over popularity, offering the manager's job to Joe Girardi at the risk of watching Don Mattingly walk away from the franchise. Beloved as team captain, "Donnie Baseball" was the early favorite to replace Joe Torre and openly coveted the spot. After finding out yesterday he didn't get it, Mattingly told the Yankees he had no interest in returning next year as bench coach or in any other coaching position. Girardi was the 2006 NL Manager of the Year with Florida, plus he has a pinstriped pedigree.

Joe Girardi told the Washington Nationals he doesn't want to be their new manager, becoming the second high-profile candidate to withdraw from consideration for the job. Girardi's agent, Steve Mandell, said his client is "looking at a couple of different options," but wouldn't elaborate. Girardi was fired this month by the Florida Marlins after one season as their manager. He interviewed with the Nationals and, at the start of their search, was thought to be a top candidate along with Lou Piniella, who ruled himself out 2 weeks ago and eventually was hired by the Chicago Cubs.

  "Coco robbing the homer kind of set the tone early," Anderson said. "It's fun, we're here in Oakland, it's an unbelievable crowd, an unbelievable atmosphere, and hopefully we can pull off the next two. "         Noteworthy Joe Girardi didn't dismiss the idea of moving Alex Rodriguez from the three-hole after an ineffective first two games of the ALDS, and indications are it's a step he is at least considering....

Mariano Rivera ended all conversation about the greatest closer in major-league history on Saturday when he tied the career saves record with the 601st of his glittering career in a 7-6 win over Toronto. The Yankee immortal matched Trevor Hoffman as the all-time leader. "[No. 602 will be] the big one because it just puts the final stamp on it that he's the greatest closer of all time," New York manager Joe Girardi said. Come on Joe. Who'd you think it was, Luis Arroyo ?

While Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that CC Sabathia would start tonight's Game 4 of the World Series against the Phillies on three days' rest, he wasn't ready to commit beyond that point. Girardi did say he would consider doing the same with starters A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte. Burnett was the winning pitcher in Thursday's 3-1 victory that evened the series at one game apiece. "This is the World Series," Girardi said. "There is no baseball after the World Series for four or five months, so there will be plenty of time to rest.

NEW YORK - For all of his home runs, all-star accolades and huge salaries, Alex Rodriguez finds himself in a most familiar spot this season. A-Rod is an October lightning rod. With every swing and miss, memories of his amazing run during the New York Yankees' championship season in 2009 fade even further. Instead, fans are becoming more and more vocal, calling for manager Joe Girardi to drop him from the No. 3 spot in the lineup. Rodriguez struck out to end the Yankees' 3-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in Game 2 of their division series Monday night, leaving the best-of-five matchup tied at 1. He has fanned plenty of times - five in all while going 1 for 9 so far in the series.

The Athletics activated slugger Yoenis Cespedes from a 15-day stint on the DL with a strained muscle in his left hand before Sunday's game against the Orioles, and he immediately went to work. Batting cleanup and playing left field, Cespedes went 2 for 5 including a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth that sent the game into extra innings. The A's are hoping he can give their slumping offense a boost. In just a little over a year in the bigs, he has had a remarkable impact on Oakland's lineup.

Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel is the favorite to be the first manager fired this season, according to online sportsbook Bovada . Although Manuel was beloved during the Phillies run of five straight division titles, topped by the World Series win in 2008, he's now 69, in the last year of his contract, and the team's off to another slow start, falling to 6-9 after getting swept by the Cincinnati Reds. This morning, sports yakker Angelo Cataldi led a call for Manuel's ouster, saying, "We would really love it to happen," promoting a poll and getting lots of agreement from callers.

Alex Rodriguez played first base for the first time in his professional career Sunday, handling three chances in three innings during the New York Yankees' 7-0 win over the Houston Astros. "It was fun," Rodriguez said. "It was quite interesting, after 20 years in the league, to see the game from a totally different lens. " The 39-year-old, who lost his third-base job to Chase Headley during a season-long drug suspension, caught Headley's throw following Jose Altuve's grounder leading off the bottom of the first.

TAMPA, Fla. - They've had Ruth and Gehrig, Mantle and DiMaggio. Those four represent the Mount Rushmore for the New York Yankees, a franchise with enough great players that it could probably use the side of another mountain, too. Derek Jeter thinks you'd have to be bored or looking for a story to discuss where he belongs in the pecking order. Larry Bowa was neither bored nor looking for a story as he finished his on-field duties as a Phillies coach Wednesday afternoon at the Carpenter Complex.

Twelve of the 13 players involved in baseball's Biogenesis investigation, including Phillies relief pitcher Antonio Bastardo, accepted 50-game suspensions Monday. However, the biggest name in the sport's latest drug scandal, Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees, remained locked in a legal rundown with Major League Baseball. Rodriguez said he intends to appeal his suspension for the remainder of this season and all of 2014. He can continue to play until that process is complete.

NEW YORK YANKEES third baseman Alex Rodriguez isn't ready to rejoin the team. The Yankees said Rodriguez has a Grade 1 strain of his left quadriceps muscle and won't be able to return this week in Texas, as had been planned. Instead, he will remain on the disabled list and return to Tampa, Fla., "for rest and treatment," the Yankees said in a statement issued before their game against the Red Sox last night in Boston. Rodriguez and manager Joe Girardi had said they were hoping he would return for tomorrow night's game against the Rangers.

NEW YORK - The injuries have added up while attendance has gone down for an aging, perennial playoff team that is no sure shot for the postseason this year. Sound familiar? While this could be a description of the Phillies, it also fits their famous neighbors 90 miles north, the New York Yankees. Who would have thought that as the July 31 trade deadline approaches both teams have the potential to be sellers? The fans of both teams aren't buying as many tickets as in the past, although interest remains high.

Against the Blue Jays this season, the only thing that has stopped the Yankees was a day full of rain. And that's what happened Sunday in the Bronx. "It's going to rain until probably 9 o'clock," Yankees manager Joe Girardi observed, perhaps wistfully. The Yankees would have been trying to make it seven in a row against the Blue Jays, but rain began to fall in the late morning with no signs of letting up, and the game was postponed before it started. Since last season, New York has won its last nine home games against Toronto, as well as the last six overall vs. its AL East rival.

RAUL IBANEZ was more than happy to turn those welcome back calls of "Ra-uuul!" into a good old Bronx cheer. Ibanez again treated Yankee Stadium as his personal playground, hitting a grand slam and two-run homer last night to help the Seattle Mariners rout New York, 12-2. "I can't tell that much of a difference even though when you hear it, depending on how you're doing, you know," Ibanez said with a sly smile. Ibanez' slam came during a seven-run first inning. Yankees backup shortstop Alberto Gonzalez got the final out in the ninth inning in his first professional pitching appearance.

ALEX RODRIGUEZ and his potentially bruised ego might be the least of the Yankees' problems this offseason. Ace CC Sabathia will have his left elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews. Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera are aging stars dealing with major injuries. Hiroki Kuroda, Ichiro Suzuki and Nick Swisher are headed for free agency. The list is a long one for the ballclub that was handed one of its most embarrassing exits from the postseason: a thorough four-game sweep by the Detroit Tigers in the ALCS.
